We're playing for an ACC Championship. What are the stakes in terms of the

upcoming NCAA Tourney -- i.e., where will be seeded if we lose / win?

At present, we're #5 in the rankings, WF is #4 & FL is #3 (about 6 points ahead of us -- 72.62 vs. 66.65), per a site I just saw with the rankings of April 16. Miss St is #6, about 4 points behind us (62.68).

I have the impression that...:
- if we win today, the best that we could do is move up to #4 (wouldn't that keep us in the bracket with the #1 team, OSU?); and that
- if we lose today, we might maintain our #5 seed (i.e., remain in the bracket with the #1 seed) thanks to our win against #9 UNC.

If that is true, then the match wouldn't change much for us in terms of the NCAA Tourney; it would be mainly for the glory of an ACC Championship.

I don't know how the NCAA sets up the tourney or how the rankings work, so the above is merely an uninformed guess.

Can someone in the know explain to me how this works?
